Emergency and other relief services firms saw

The report, 2005
Service Annual Survey (SAS): Health Care and Social Assistance, shows

- Within the medical and diagnostic laboratories industry, revenue provided by government entities (excluding Medicare and Medicaid) rose from $180 million to $227 million, a 26 percent increase.
- Revenue for continuing care retirement communities rose from $16.3 billion to $18 billion, a 10 percent rise.
- Hospital revenue rose 7 percent from $569 billion to $611 billion.
- Revenue provided by worker’s compensation for chiropractors fell
from $812 million to $714 million, a 12 percent decrease.
The estimates are from a newly selected sample for the 2005 SAS based on the 2002 NAICS and apply only to employer firms. Estimates contain sampling
and nonsampling errors. To keep the identity of an individual firm confidential,
some estimates may be suppressed. Users making their own estimates, based on the
survey estimates, should cite the U.S. Census Bureau as the source of the original
estimates only. See <http://www.census.gov/services/sas/cv.html
